Allegaeon's year got off to a good start, what with the release of its fantastic new album Proponent For Sentience. Unfortunately you've got to take the good with the bad sometimes, and the bad here is that bassist Corey Archuleta is quitting the band. For some reason the headlines have been circulating that Archuleta is the band's founding bassist, but that title belongs to Aaron Donoho. Either way, the good news is that you can take his spot!
Seriously, if you go and email email@example.com right now, you'll get an auto-reply with further instructions on how to apply to be in the band. Don't forget to catch Allegaeon on its trek with Battlecross and Necromancing The Stone, which will be Archuleta's last tour!
Anyway, check out Archuleta's statement below, and the accompanying video at the bottom.
After eight years with Allegaeon, my time has come to move on to pursue other interests and dreams. This decision didn’t happen overnight; it has been on my mind for some time. I have learned an immeasurable amount about music, the world, people, and myself, having this experience. It has led me to a sick interest in the law, and hopefully practicing it someday. I am excited for another bass player to take over, and offer something new to the ever-expanding progression of Allegaeon.
One hundred metric tons of thanks to the Allegaeon guys, both present and past, Metal Blade Records, Extreme Management Group, Inc. and Circle Talent Agency.
Most importantly, you, the person that bought a CD, shirt, ticket, gave us a place to sleep, shower…you deserve the biggest of thanks. Being in a band isn’t easy, whether it be financially, physically, or mentally. But the fans kept me, and the band, moving forward.
The Winter Warriors Tour featuring Battlecross, and Necromancing the Stone, will be my last run. As far as a final Colorado date, TBA, maybe.
If you are interested in being the new bass player, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. You'll receive an auto-reply with instructions (Gmail users, make sure to check the "Updates" folder for the auto-reply). I'll be reviewing the material once you have submitted them.
